Each Thursday, we host a free virtual learning opportunity, featuring experts and researchers from the KU Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center.
Presentations focus on understanding risk factors in Alzheimer’s disease, the latest research in preventing Alzheimer’s and what we know about brain health and aging.
Weekly Webinar with KU Alzheimer's Disease Research Center
Thursdays from 2-2:30 p.m.

Effects of Exercise on Cerebral Vascular Health
Dr. Stacey Aaron | September 29th, 2022
Dr. Stacey Aaron is an ACSM-certified exercise physiologist with 15 years of experience working with various populations from young adults to stroke survivors. She received a Ph.D. in Health and Rehabilitation Science at the Medical University of South Carolina studying the effects of exercise on cardiovascular and functional limitations but became interested in the impact of exercise on brain health. In an effort to learn cerebrovascular physiology, she was awarded a Spaulding Research Institute’s Leadership Catalyst Fellowship, which provided two years of funding as a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard Medical School and Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. During this fellowship, she assessed the effect of aerobic exercise on cerebrovascular function in young adults with mild traumatic brain injury. Currently, Dr. Aaron is a Frontiers TL1 postdoctoral research fellow in Dr. Sandra Billinger’s laboratory focusing on cerebrovascular function in aging and age-related neurological disorders.
